This week, Intuit announced the new QuickBooks Accountant Apps Program to help accountants more efficiently select and manage QBO apps for their clients. Float cash flow forecasting is one of the first eight apps to be integrated with QuickBooks Online Accountant (QBOA).
QBO Apps chosen for the initial rollout of the program were selected by Intuit based on recommendations from accountants. All of the apps integrate with QuickBooks Online and offer single sign-on via QuickBooks Online Accountant. The program began rolling out in March, and will be available to all QuickBooks Online Accountant users in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada and Australia by the end of April.
Apps involved in the program can be connected to and accessed straight from the apps tab in QuickBooks Online Accountant.
All QBO apps included in the program offer preferred pricing when purchased by accountants for their clients. QBOA users can also receive a single itemised bill each month for all of the apps they have chosen for clients through the program.
The first QBO apps available in the QuickBooks Accountant Apps Program are:
- Float – Cash flow management, forecasting and planning
- Tsheets – Time tracking and employee scheduling
- Expensify – Expense management
- Circulus – Bill pay for business
- Method – CRM, for customer relationship management
- Excel Transaction Importer – Import and deletion of Excel transactions
- ServiceM8 – Field service solution
- SOS Inventory – Inventory, ordering and manufacturing business management
Intuit is planning to expand the program to more apps in the next few months.
“The QuickBooks Accountant Apps Program simplifies app selection, connection and management directly within QuickBooks Online Accountant,” said Rich Preece, leader of Intuit’s accountant segment, small business and self-employed group, in a statement.
“This new program helps accounting professionals be more of a trusted advisor to their small business clients because they are able to recommend and easily implement apps that help their clients be more successful.”
“It’s great to see innovation that makes life easier for both accountants and their clients. Also in a startup, billing can be one of those headaches that distracts from really focusing on the core product” said Colin Hewitt, CEO of Float Cash Flow Forecasting.
“QuickBooks Online Accountant should enable software companies to focus more time on their core product, and simplify workflow for all parties involved. We’re looking forward to seeing increased adoption of Float and being able to pass on some of the savings to the end users.”
